Bowling: McKeown, Klinger advance to state tourney

Sequim sophomore Madison McKeown is headed back to state, and this season she’ll have company.

McKeown and SHS senior Corinne Klinger earned berths at the state prep finals after posting top-10 individual efforts at the West Central District tourney in Tacoma on Feb. 1.

McKeown bowled a three-game, 421-pin series (120-161-140) to place sixth among bowlers not advancing with their teams to state. Klinger bowled all three district games above her 123 season average — 125, 152 and 139 — to rack up 416 pins and an eight place finish for her first state tourney berth.

The state tournament is set for Feb. 6-7 at Narrows Plaza Bowl in University Place.

Klahowya won the district team title, the lone Olympic League team to advance. Franklin Pierce was second, followed by Selah, River Ridge and Washington.

Sequim’s district competitors were McKeown, Klinger and Gabriella Mattern-Hall. Anastasia Updike and Trinity Henderson were district alternates.

Last season, McKeown was ninth at districts and tied for 20th at the state tournament. Hers was Sequim High’s best individual performance at the state tourney; Samantha Whiteside held the previous best finish of 31st place following the 2009-2010 season.
